For the Roslyn Bulldogs, the 2012-13 regular season ended in disappointment with a tough 50-47 loss to archrival Jericho. However, the mighty Bulldogs bounced back last Friday, defeating Bethpage, 52-39 in the first round of the Class A playoffs. In the post season, the top stars always come through and for Roslyn that means turning to Mark Gjonlekaj. In the win, Mark had a triple-double, scoring 10 points, pulling down 14 rebounds and most impressively, blocking 10 shots. In recent contests, Terrence Pierce has complimented Gjonlekaj on offense and the Friday win was no different as the senior guard came up huge in the final frame, scoring 10 of Roslyn’s 14 points as the Bulldogs pulled away for the road win. Andrew Slutsky chipped in with 10 points. Next for Roslyn was a quarterfinal game against Mineola, which The Roslyn News will report on in its next issue.

Luke, also a senior at Roslyn High School, won two of four major Indoor Invitational events this season at the armory. He won the Bishop Loughlin Games and the Stanner Games with a time of 7.64 in the 55 hurdles that is a Long Island best this year. At the Stanner, he also anchored the Shuttle Hurdle Relay to a Long Island Best time of 32.4. In the Hispanic Games he placed third while at the New Balance games he placed second. In these invitational meets he competed against only the best from the eastern seaboard. He won conference and county championships in the 55 hurdles readily while also anchoring the 4x400 meter relay to first and third finishes in those same championships. He is currently looking forward to state qualifiers and, if all goes according to form, a state Class B Championship.
Former SUNY College at Old Westbury right-handed pitcher Robert Whitenack has been named to the Chicago Cubs’ 40-man roster, the first Panther in school history to make a major league roster.

In the stands at Roslyn High School basketball games, the school’s athletic director, Dawn Cerrone, wears a blue Roslyn jersey with the number 12 on it. Why? Well, despite having a great regular season in which they won 14 games, the Bulldogs are ranked #12 in Class A playoff action. As such, all of their games have been on the road, including the two wins over Bethpage and Mineola. The low ranking has given Roslyn all the motivation they have needed so far to advance in the playoffs.
